Scarlet Cup Theater presents comedy “Bad Dates”

Scarlet Cup Theater has hit the mark again with a venue and play pairing which is sure to entertain and fascinate audiences.  The play is Bad Dates , a one woman comedy, and the venue is the historic Clemens Caldwell house on the Old Harrodsburg Road (Maple Avenue).  The play is set in a New York apartment and the charming architecture of the Clemens Caldwell house fits the bill perfectly.

The show opens Oct. 31st and will run Nov. 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9 and 10.  Tickets will be available on the Arts Commission web site beginning Oct. 1st.  Opening night tickets will include a reception hosted by the Scarlet Cup Theater board members in the elegant dining room of the house.

Guests will be welcomed before the show into the formal living room and then will be seated in the stunning foyer for the action.  Scarlet Cup is grateful to Dr. John and Jane Pappas, the new owners of the home, who have donated the home and grounds for this event.

Rob Caldwell, a relative of the original owners of the home, will present a history of the house at the Boyle County Public Library on Oct. 27th at 3:00.  The public is welcome to attend this free program.

Vince DiMartino named 2018 Arts Citizen of the Year

The Arts Commission has named Vince DiMartino the 2018 Arts Citizen of the Year.  DiMartino will be presented with the award on January 9, 2019 at the Annual General Meeting of the Arts Commission at 5:30 at McKinney Conference Center at Constitution Square.  The public is invited to attend the presentation and reception.

The Award recognizes an individual, or individuals, who have distinguished themselves in their artistic career often beyond the local area.  DiMartino is not only an internationally noted performer, but through his work has been instrumental in bringing top performers to Danville and has fostered the development of numerous young musicians while serving on the faculty at Centre College.

While he has performed and lectured the world over, he still finds time to share his talents in Danville through dedicated involvement with the Brass Band Festival, solo performances and with guest artists at special events.

In his spare time, DeMartino serves on the Danville/Boyle County Planning and Zoning Board.
